Crystal Clear Skincare

You'll be surprised to know that I have reviewed a skincare product! As my blog develops and I continue to read other blogs my knowledge of blogging is expanding and the idea for blog posts on my blog is widening.

I managed to blag some Crystal Clear products from my mum when they weren't reacting with her skin as she would have liked. However for me these products worked a treat.

Crystal Clear - Soothing Cleansing Gel - Illuminate Review

Crystal Clear Soothing Cleansing Gel 

200ml RRP £20.00 (

Crystal Clear's website ( describe this product as;
Soap free and suitable for all skin types, even dry and sensitive skin.
Gentle foaming agents effectively dissolve grease, grime and excess sebum, thoroughly removing even the heaviest make up. Extremely mild, Crystal Clear Soothing Cleansing Gel contains chelating agents, re-plumping agents and moisturising properties that leave a protective film on the skin to help prevent trans-epidermal water loss. Can also be used as a shaving aid by both men and women.

When trying out this product I used a bit more than the bottle suggested as I love a good soapy face wash. The directions on the bottle tell you to lather the product in your hands before applying to you face. I was pleased how much the gel foamed up as it was easier to apply. 
The scent was very much like a men's aftershave but this was subtle enough to use without it being overpowering. I am usually one to exfoliate my skin every time I wash my face but after using this I didn't feel the need. My skin felt clean and fresh!

Crystal Clear Illuminate 
Crystal Clear's website ( describe this product as;
Illuminate is our instant 'beauty boost' to hydrate, brighten and firm dull, lifeless skin. Thanks to a host of active ingredients, it visibly reduces uneven skin tone, diminishes age spots and creates the perfect base for long-lasting luminous make-up. To keep the sun's damaging effects at bay, Illuminate also protects from UVA and UVB.

When looking at the packaging and opening the box to find the bottle I can definitely see that they have gone all out to make this product look high end and match it's steep price tag.
The directions on Illuminate say to use a single pump of the serum, massage the product in your hand and apply to the face and neck. This product is a thick white moisturiser that smells like citrus fruits almost like orange peel. When I rubbed this onto my face it didn't feel thick and greasy but light and creamy which soaked in well. Afterwards my face felt better than it has done when I've used other cheap moisturiser.

Overall I would recommend both of these products as they really do make my skin feel lovely. I understand the price tags may put people off but for Illuminate I really do think it is going to last a while! I can't wait to continue using these products and see the benefits for my skin!
Have you tried the Crystal Clear Skincare range? Anything you would recommend?
